The app takes an incredibly long time to load, even on a flagship device. It does eventually load. App freezes if the screen locks, and the only way to get it started again is to force quit and reopen the app - que: waiting several minutes for the app to load in the first place. Would recommend blocking trackers, since it can access personal info irrelevant to the app's function.

Hi Magnus, communities should load within seconds if the app has a decent network connection. Once downloaded, they will also work even without a network connection. As for personal info, can you provide more specifics (visitors+android@outerspatial.com)? We do not collect personal info that is not directly relevant to improving the app experience.

Now that I figured out how to pull up the maps it's very helpful when hiking and walking doing the Five Rivers MetroParks Trails Challenge. It was a problem to pull the maps up until someone showed me the proper way to access them. We finished all the walking/hiking trails and had a wonderful time doing all of the trails using the maps to keep us on track.

Glad you're finding the app helpful! We'd love to hear more about what made it difficult to find the maps so we can continue to improve the interface. If you're willing to provide more feedback, please send it to visitors+android@outerspatial.com.

I was hoping to find new and interesting places to camp in Northern California but the locations I already know are frequently wrong or completely missing. My frustration with this app inspired me to go back to the CA reservation page where the sites are in the correct location. Regretfully on CA reservation some of the smaller sites just have a placeholder page but that's better than nothing which coincidentally is what the app has to offer me.

If you're open to providing more detail about which locations are wrong or completely missing, we'd be happy to pass that feedback on to get it added to the app: visitors+android@outerspatial.com.
